My Five Songs Of the Week

(0) Comments | Posted 19 April 2016 | (01:15)

A haunting and aquatic intro draws you into 'Aphrodite', the second track lifted from 'Alpha', the sophomore EP from London-based singer-song writer and producer Sooski. It's her near flawless voice and tone floating in sync with the thunderous drums that really impresses.
Alpha is available on iTunes and Spotify.

Kaytranada offers his latest single featuring celebrated West Coast musician Anderson Paak. We're all falling for that 'Nada' signature sound of synths and high hats, but the B-Movie whistle intro makes 'Glowed Up' the first single from Kaytranada's debut album '99.9%', easily one of the most streamed new releases. 'Glowed Up' is taken from 99.9% available for pre-order from iTunes.

Skepta finally has his highly anticipated fourth studio album, 'Konnichiwa' on pre-order on iTunes. Skepta's first drop is 'Man', celebrating his allegiance to his Boy Better Know family. The track, which samples Queens Of The Stone Age's 'Regular John' is bound to be a road/festival anthem this summer with its bouncy bass line and Skepta's bravado bars. 'Konnichiwa' is available on pre-order from iTunes.

Yasmeen, the Phoenix and Detroit raised 20-something songstress with Middle Eastern upbringing powers her vocals through 'Selfish', her epic ballad that is usually only conquered by females twice her age. 'Selfish' is available on iTunes.

Drake can do no wrong. Sampling the Funky House anthem, 'Do You Mind' by Kyla as well as Afrobeats top boy, Wizkid. On paper alone, 'One Dance' already looked like hit! Currently No.1 in the UK singles charts, the nation has embraced this track as an ode to the good old days of Funky House in 2008. Look out for Drizzy's forthcoming album 'Views From The 6' dropping this month. 'One Dance' is available on

My Top 5 Soundcloud Tracks Of The Week: 2

(0) Comments | Posted 19 July 2015 | (23:17)

The only thing tutor and student usually ever in common is the fact they work in the same place. Making Noize Production, tutor, with Harmonix met Cynthia Taiwo, student, while teaching a music course at an East London media college. The body of work they all managed to come up with, a festival party anthem, is A star!

Rudimental, the platinum selling 4 piece unveiled their latest offering, Love Aint Just A Word featuring grime legend Dizzee Rascal and Anne-Marie. Although Dizzee is obviously a big pull feature wise, its Anne-Marie's distinctively rough vocals that carries this bouncy Reggae, DnB and Ska fused riddim!

The South London collective, House Of Pharoahs, release their latest body of work, Southern Stamp EP. The EP. which is probably going to be on repeat for alot of stoners, has melodic and euphoric productions with thought provoking lyrics of youth struggle. Not the best mix down job in terms of sound quality, but watching HOP perform live might have to be the next list to tick off this summer.

Former Ugandan child soldier, Goddaz, still has a fighters spirit in him. Here, he heads up his latest track, Joint Enterprise: Not Guilty by Association (JENGbA), a grass roots campaign launched by families wanting to highlight the abuse of the Joint Enterprise doctrine. The verses highlight the plight many young people and their families go through, when charged but claim, not guilty by association. Thought provoking, political music.

Etta Bond, when are you going to drop a full body of work? this ask must be echoing all over her social media platform. Seen And Never Heard with Chris Loco is one of her best vocal works to date, simply for it's laid back and effortlessly soulful tone on a groove sound. Album? we're waiting!

Goddaz - JENGbA is also available to purchase from iTunes...

5 Soundcloud Tracks Of The Week

(0) Comments | Posted 13 June 2015 | (22:34)

@Stikmatik, one of North London's most prolific producers, describes his sound as a blend of "DnB, desi, Hip Hop, RnB, Folk, Grime and Dub all wrapped into a secret formula" He displays his versatility with his latest offering, 'Heaven' h.o.t.h Remix. Need a hot track as well as a remix? Stikmatik is your guy.

@GraciousKisay, the creator of the phenomenon that was the 'Migraine Skank' returns with another head jerking, gun finger and screw face-maker of a tune. The intro alone sounds so solid (pun intended) and its topped off with bravado bars. Nice one Gracious!

@Yasmeen_music has that strong and pure pop ballad voice you hardly hear nowadays. 'Said U Would' is clean, stripped down with strings to emphasis the mood, before some kicks and hi hats bring it home for impact. Bookmark her soundcloud page.

According to her website bio, @LuvRell is best recognised for her 90's-inspired melodies, intricate harmonies and creative riffs. 'Luv You Right' exhibits this statement perfectly. Have a listen and you'll spend the £2.49 for her Alpha Tauri EP from iTunes HERE.

@DornikSpeaks uploaded Kitos remix to his latest track 'Drive', just a few days ago. In that time the epically euphoric remix has already amassed over 5,000 plays and steadily growing. This is a perfect example of not spoiling a delectable track, but simply adding a different spice to it.

Five Most Stylish UK Music Videos

(0) Comments | Posted 24 April 2015 | (01:51)

iLLAMADi Ft CALIBAR- Make P


North London artists iLLAMADi and Calibar join forces once again for their slick collaboration since their last outing back in 2010. Ever since Jay Z's 'On To The Next' music video, more UK Rap artists have taken a liking to the use of Black and White visuals. This, coupled with cut-away shots of luxury items, and correct styling adds an almost fashionable look to iLLAMADi's latest video, directed by his go-to-guys, Trailpictures.

THE SQUARE - Lewisham McDeez
Novelist, the new Grime kid on the block, alongside his fellow crew of MC's called The Square, had an anthem on their hands with this track. The video is already one of my favourite pick for 2015. No Hats No Hoods filmed this exactly like a Grime video would of been back in 2005. The use of fish-eye lens, a big name cameo (Stormzy) shot inside a fast food restaurant and on a shoe-string budget! I'm almost sure this was all intentional.

GEORGE THE POET - Wotless
George The Poet's "Wotless" is directed by Hunger TV's creative director Vicky Lawton. Like the above video, filmed in Black and White, stylish, clean and well lit visual allows George to tell his come-up story with clever word play. Some of the scenes even remind me of Michael & Janet Jackson's epic video 'Scream'.

SOOSKI - Immortal
Sometimes If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself. Self written, directed and styled by the artist, Sooski herself (she thanks Highly Cultured and her aides in the credits) The London singer-song writer delivers a haunting ballad with an almost gothic video for her sepia-and colour saturated visual. Sooski gives her music video an aged look with a worn-VHS-effect. beautifully placed in a performance scene. Nicely done.

J SPADES Ft TINIE TEMPAH & PROFESSOR GREEN - Slick Rick (Remix)
When you have 2 chart topping rap artists feature in your video, you better make sure you bring the big guns out, production wise. J Spades and his team spared no expenses. Sometimes your friends BMW 645 is too mainstream to use in your video, sometimes you have to call up Mercedes and ask them to lend you their G wagon. Night shots of the London streets, cut-away shots of Russian-looking models with eye patches cavorting with bottles of expensive bubbly. This is hood video version...
